YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Indoor Rowing Program

Indoor Rowing Small Group Training Classes! 

Join us for the next fitness craze! Rowing utilizes nearly 84% of your body's muscle. It's a high-intensity, low-impact workout that will push your entire body.

These organized rowing classes lead by certified rowing instructors take place on Concept2 rowers. The workouts are 30-45 minutes in length, but, participants will always have the rowers, the room, and the certified instructor for up to 60 minutes. With only 7 rowers in our fleet, participants get ample one-on-one coaching during the small group session. Each class time must have a minimum of 4 pre-registered participants each month. 

Program Fees

$10/class if you sign up for the month in advance. $30-$50/month depending on the number of classes in that particular month.
